Let's be careful where we draw our lines in the sand. Here are mine:

-Iran no nukes, thru any means short of occupation.
-Israel should be in Nato - ie we'd go to war.
-Georgia and Ukraine - not in NATO, we should not go to war with Russia for the sake of these countries who have not gone to war for us (small forces in Iraq don't cut it) and who are not of vital interest to us. Other pressures, yes. Aid, yes.
-Poland, we should defend. Other Baltic states, maybe.

If you want peace prepare for war, but choose your ground carefully and make it very clear where the line is well in advance. Do not box your opponent in just because it feels good.

Remember the only countries with martial spirit and expertise are the USA and the UK. Token gestures from the parasites in NATO will be no comfort in battle.

America the miserable

The Warren interviews were crammed with direct comparisons between the candidates to McCain's great advantage, but both were weak on the question "What is America's greatest moral failure?"
Obama said America's greatest moral failure is its insufficient help to the disadvantaged. He noted that the Bible quotes Jesus as saying "whatever you do for the least of my brothers, you do for me."
To Obama this means
"whatever government compels you to do for the least of my brothers, you do for me."
Apart from his slander on America, Obama's misreading of Christ defines socialism.
McCain said the nation's greatest moral shortcoming is its failure to "devote ourselves to causes greater than our self-interests."
That's piffle because it's untrue and double-piffle because were it true of government it would be a good, republican thing.

The right answer is
"America's greatest moral failure would be to elect a sophomoric bullshitter as President."
